We were delighted to be invited to visit Unipres as part of the Bring It On engineering event which is designed to raise awareness of careers in engineering. The engineering sector employs approximately 122,000 people in the North East. That is around 1 in 10 of all jobs in the region.
During the visit, the students had a tour of the factory floor and were surprised to find out how many robots there were compared to the human workforce. After the tour, the students visited the training academy where they used virtual reality software to operate a crane and weld car parts. The Unipres staff were super impressed with the students' ability to operate the machinery.
Thank you to Rob and Steve at Unipres for a fantastic visit!
